Our placement at Planet Comicon allowed us to get to know our neighbors for the show and on our right was BACA – Bikers Against Child Abuse. We weren’t totally sure how that would work out but they simply could not have been more fun to be around. Geek and Kryptonite and Sherbear and many others were on our right side and we would hang out with them anytime.
From their website:
Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation, and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner, however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle.
Here is Cullen’s interview with Sherbear from the floor of Planet Comicon 2015.
